The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos - Brian Greene (2011)

Suggestions for Further Reading

The subject of parallel universes draws on a broad range of scientific material. There is a growing literature that focuses on various aspects of such material, mostly intended for the nonexpert, but often well-suited for those with more background. In addition to the references called out in the notes, here is a collection of books, from the many wonderful ones that have been written, through which the reader can continue exploring topics discussed in The Hidden Reality.
